AEE Program to Reduce Energy Demand, Energy Efficiency Project Costs (Ind. Report)
Alliance for Energy Efficiency
Date: 2019-06-17
The Washington, DC-based Alliance for Energy Efficiency (AEE) is reporting the launch of a new, wide-ranging program for commercial building owners to reduce energy demand and, as a result, significantly decrease the need for utilities to build new generating capacity or purchase expensive outsourced power to meet future energy demand.

Central to the program is AEE's partnerships with trade associations in a wide range of industries, whose membership encompasses virtually every segment of the marketplace and collectively represents enormous purchasing power. These trade associations have established relationships and channels of communication with their members and are able to create broad scale awareness of economically compelling energy reduction opportunities.

The massive, collective buying power of the trade associations has motivated installation contractors and manufacturers of energy products to offer substantially lower costs to complete projects. As a result, commercial building owners can complete projects to reduce energy cost by up to 80 pct at no cost at all, or costs so low to often be recovered through energy savings in as little as 3 to 12 months, according to the AEE.

Despite the wide range of available energy-saving technologies and compelling economics, the broad marketplace still has little awareness of the opportunity, and has done little to participate, he said. The Alliance for Energy Efficiency focus is to change that by commercializing energy efficiency through this program.

The AEE program includes a full range of energy technologies, including, but not limited to LED lighting, HVAC, controls, building management systems, demand control ventilation, variable frequency drives, window films and power factor correction.

Virginia School Board Questions LEED Standards ROI (Ind. Report)
USGBC
Date: 2019-06-14
In the Old Dominion State, the Richmond Free Press reports the Richmond Public Schools' COO Darin Simmons has advised the Richmond School Board that Huguenot High and three other schools that are under construction to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Gold standard has not resulted in "significant" savings.

The schools are now projected to cost a collective $148 million, or $38 million more than originally estimated. The board was told that adhering to the lesser LEED Silver standard would add 8 pct to the cost, or about $12 million. Eliminating LEED standards in the construction would save possibly $3 million of that because money would still need to be spent energy efficient doors, windows and lighting. All three schools are to be equipped with solar energy panels, now seen as more effective in cutting energy costs than building to LEED standards. The buildings are slated to open in 2020.

New Credit Card Limits Climate Impact (Ind. Report)
UNFCCC
Date: 2019-06-03
Swedish financial company Doconnomy is touting a new credit card that allows consumers to track and offset the emissions related their purchases.

The card uses the Aland Index to quantify consumers' carbon footprint and compute offset costs using the World Bank's carbon price. Consumers can use the data supplied to either reduce their carbon footprint through behavior change, or to buy offset credits from UN-certified projects that reduce, avoid or remove GHG emissions.

Users can also directly compensate for their GHG emissions, through projects meeting the criteria of UN-certified green projects. To identify the carbon dioxide (CO2) impact of each transaction, the Do card uses the Aland Index, developed in 2017 by Bank of Aland in Finland.

Partnering with the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the initiative encourages users to compensate their carbon footprints in UN-certified projects that reduce, avoid or remove GHG emissions. The projects are implemented in developing countries and are rewarded with Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) as well as Gold Standard. Ranging from cleaner-burning cook stoves to wind-generated electricity and clean waste disposal, all projects contribute to global emissions reductionsA savings product by the company offers an interest rate that includes investment in climate-friendly projects.

Bipartisan Building Energy Efficiency Legislation Tabled (Reg & Leg)
Energy Efficiency
Date: 2019-06-03
In Washington, U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) and Mike Kelly (R-PA) have introduced the Commercial, Low Emissions and Net Energy Reduction (CLEANER) Buildings Act of 2019 which would extend the tax deduction for energy efficient commercial buildings. If this incentive is renewed, the deduction -- aka 179D -- could generate thousands of new design and construction jobs and contribute millions to the gross domestic product, according to the release.

Section 179D of the tax code offers a tax deduction to building owners and businesses for energy efficiency improvements such as lighting, heating and cooling, hot water systems, ventilation, or the building envelope like insulation or windows. It offers incentives for upgrades at new or existing buildings that cut the total energy and power cost by at least 50 percent compared to a building meeting the ASHRAE codes baseline for energy efficiency.

Jason Hartke, CEO, Alliance to Save Energy states, "This is a key tax incentive for encouraging energy efficiency in commercial buildings, which account for about 20 percent of U.S. energy consumption. It is important that Congress extend this incentive to give building owners and designers the certainty they need to make these investments." (Source: Office of Rep.

IEA says Nuclear Power Decline Threatens Climate Goals (Int'l.)
International Energy Agency
Date: 2019-05-29
According to a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) a steep decline in nuclear energy capacity will threaten climate goals and power supply security unless advanced economies find a way to extend the lifespan of their reactors. Nuclear is currently the world's second-largest source of low-carbon electricity, behind hydropower, and accounts for 10 pct of global electricity generation.

But nuclear fleets in the US and Europe are on average more than 35 years old and many of the world's 452 reactors are set to close as cheap gas and tighter safety requirements make them uneconomical to operate.

According to the IEA report, "Without policy changes, advanced economies could lose 25 pct of their nuclear capacity by 2025 and as much as two-thirds of it by 2040." The report notes renewables like wind power have increased in advanced economies, but the decline in nuclear has left the clean energy share of the global power supply unchanged in 20 years. In order to offset the expected decline of nuclear, investments in renewables would have to grow fivefold, the report adds.

According to IEA Energy Markets chief Keisuke Sadamori, it is more expensive to build new wind and solar than to extend the lifespan of existing reactors, which require investment of $500 million to $1 billion per GW of capacity. Many U.S. reactors have already seen their lifespan extended to 60 from 40 years.(Source: IEA, CBC, 27 May, 2019) Contact: International Energy Agency, Dr. Fatih Birol, Exec.

China Cutting New Wind Power Project Subsidies (Int'l. Report)
National Development and Reform Commission
Date: 2019-05-27
In Beijing, China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) has announced that as of 1 Juny, 2019, onshore wind projects connected to the national grid will no longer receive the fixed payment -- feed-in-tariff -- and will instead have to negotiate a price with the national grid directly, The new rules do not phase out government-set tariffs entirely, as the negotiated price must be less than an official "guidance price," which serves as an upper limit and is based on electricity generation costs in the area the project is based.

The prices will still be subsidized by the National Renewable Energy Development Fund but the ceiling will fall in 2020 when projects are required to reach "grid-price parity" and compete equally with the cost of coal power in their region.

The NDRC notice also introduced a new guidance price for newly approved offshore wind power projects. (Source: NDRC, Caixin, 27 May, 2019)Contact: China National Development and Reform Commission, en.ndrc.gov.cn

Maryland Mandates 50 pct Renewable Energy by 2030 (Reg. & Leg.)
Maryland
Date: 2019-05-24
Under legislation passed by the Maryland General Assembly last month, utilities in the state will be required to subsidize solar and wind farms as well as maintain incentives for trash incinerators and paper mills even though they generate pollution and greenhouse gases.

With the green energy legislation, Maryland joins seven others with renewable energy goals of 50 pct or more. Three-quarters of Maryland's green energy supply came from outside the state in 2017.

The new Clean Energy Jobs Act, which is expected to increase an average Maryland residential utility bill by approximately $1.50 per month, has been criticized as not doing enough to combat climate change and not guaranteeing that the tens of millions of dollars of subsidies paid out each year translates to jobs in Maryland.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R), who endorses renewable energy, expressed his support for expanding the mandate to 100 pct clean energy by 2040, and said he would push for competition in the industry to limit costs for ratepayers.

Date: 2019-05-24
In Columbus, the republican-dominated Ohio State House of Representatives has announced changes to a comprehensive energy bill that would bailout the state's nuclear power plants and repeal alternative energy mandates disqualifying wind and solar power from Clean Air Credits. The elimination of wind and solar leaves nuclear power as the only beneficiary of the Clean Air Credits program.

The bill also allows utilities to charge ratepayers a fee to cover subsidies for Ohio Valley Electric Corporation (OVEC) and its two coal plants. The charge to residential ratepayers was cut from $2.50 to $1 a month, reducing the money for credits from $300 million to about $190 million.

Improving, Managing Wind Power Energy Production (Int'l Report)
National Science Foundation
Date: 2019-05-20
Portuguese scientists have released the first of several reports with findings that could help officials manage wind power facilities more efficiently and increase renewable energy production.

Among the findings, Perdigao, a field experiment in Vale do Cobrao, a valley in eastern Portugal, shows that the speed and direction of wind over complex terrain at the height of wind turbine hubs differ by as much as 40-50 pct from standard weather forecasts that wind turbine operators rely on to bring facilities online and supply wind power to the grid, according to a report published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.

To be useful, wind power forecasts need to be made at least six hours in advance so electric grid operators can balance loads effectively. The Perdigao study aims to improve such forecasts by improving "microscale" models which capture the details of flow surrounding a wind turbine providing wind information at points separated by 100 meters compared to tens of kilometers in standard weather prediction models.

The study was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) NSF Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences. (Source: NSF, 19 May, 2019) Contact: NSF Public Affairs, (703) 292-8070, media@nsf.gov; www.nsf.gov

Scottish Cities Chasing Ist Place in Net-Zero Emissions Race (Int'l)
Carbon Emissions
Date: 2019-05-20
Like most city-dwellers, Scots travel in polluting vehicles, use fossil fuels to heat their homes and work in an economy that produces greenhouse gases. But Scotland's two largest cities -- Glasgow (pop. 596,000) and Edinburgh (POP. 482,000) -- are racing to become the UK's first city with net-zero emissions.

To that end, both cities have set targets exceeding the Scottish government's 2045 net-zero target and that set by the UK government's Committee on Climate Change of 2050.

Achieving net-zero status involves more than reducing emissions, it also involves offsetting greenhouse gases released with initiatives such as planting trees.

Glasgow City Council is working with Scottish Power, the energy provider in charge of the UK's largest onshore wind farm near Glasgow. Glasgow's energy sector is dominated by wind power and continued investment in the electricity grid has allowed the city to focus on other parts of the economy such as transport and heating.

Edinburgh's carbon emissions have fallen by about a third since 2005, and the city council aims to continue that momentum by boosting renewable energy, making the city centre a low-emissions zone and encouraging low-carbon design for construction projects. The city also has schemes in place to reduce waste and increase recycling. Additionally, cyclists, pedestrians and public transport will have better access to the city centre, which will be off-limits to most cars to help cut emissions.

Further to our 20th February coverage, Anbaric Development Partners is reporting construction on the Anbaric Renewable Energy Center at Brayton Point, Mass. is expected to get underway in 2021.

The facility, with a 1,200-MW high-voltage direct current converter and 400 MW of battery storage capacity, will serve as the "plug-in" between offshore wind turbines and the power grid from which local homes and buildings receive electricity. Between the 1,200 watts being converted onsite and the energy being stored, the facility's output would be "comparable" to a peak of 1,600 MW.

Anbaric estimates the project will come in at roughly $645 million.

Anbaric Development Partners creates new entities that transform old energy systems into more effective and resilient ones with an emphasis on clean energy. The company's financial partner is the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, a $189 billion public pension fund, according to the company website.
